You don't give your budget but I found the Singel Hotel to be very pleasant indeed, with a good breakfast and only 5 minutes walk from Centraal station 9where you will arrive/leave if you are using Schiphol airport).

The hotel website is

but I booked through This is a reliable site with honest guest reviews and good mapping, used by many VT-ers. I suggest you look there for alternative hotels if you find the Singel does not meet your needs.

If price is your first preference look ar own VT:

List per cheapest price and selecy 1 star; and than look st the map (closest to the Central Station might be the best option for you).

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Harold & Kumar 2

by LrSorr


Plot: Follows the cross-country adventures of the pot-smoking duo as they try to outrun authorities who suspect them of being terrorists when they try to sneak a bong on board their flight to Amsterdam.

Can you believe I was right there when they were shooting the Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle sequel??? Funny thing is no one knew or recognized these dudes as they were filming; then there I was flipping out like there's ants in my pants, trying to figure out whether to interrupt the filming and jump those guys or what. I wonder if they caught me on would be nice to see myself, even just my hair or toes in the movie! :-)

Now here's the TIP -- walk around, do something, explore the city... you'll never know who you will run into.

Getting cash while in Amsterdam

by Roaminmn

In my experience, I can use the ATM machines (not that many around compared with the US). You get cash in local currency but the bank does the conversion and debits your account with the correct amount. Easier than getting the exchange at the airport. Also, remember to keep enough local currency to buy food at the airport or pay the taxi \ train

Have an open mind! Experience...

by kinipela6

Have an open mind! Experience all there is to experience! There are a lot of things here that you won't find elsewhere! Also, leave plenty of time, I sure didn't!
The picture below is of 'The Grasshopper' which is the biggest (that I saw) 'coffee' shop in Amsterdam. It is definately a well known one.

'shroom shop, August 2002

by bakpakchik

Jill and myself outside one of Amsterdam's gazillions of 'smart shops' Okay, it was the tackiest, most touristic things to have done, but I would go back and do it everytime. Mushrooms did for me what no joint ever did.

My last afternoon in Amsterdam, we had a picnic in the park outside the Van Gogh Museum, mushroomed ourselves for one last time and got caught in the rain - stranded under a bridge with dozens of other tourists, with the buskers playing all sorts of exotic music and the mushroom effect kicked in making everything totally surreal.

The "e" at Floriade 2002

by adambeau

Once every 10 years, an International flower show is held. I was fortunate enough to visit Amsterdam for the first time during a Floriade year, 2002's held at Haarlememeer.
The tulips and tulip fields of Holland cannot be outdone, except perhaps, for the wonder of a Floriade exposition that attracts international artists from across the globe.
Two travelogues devoted to Floriade 2002. Canal cruises, Floriade, Centraal Station, Koniginnedag, the sounds, the smells, the tastes, the sites, the art, the architecture, but mostly the friendly, lively, happy and warm people who made Amsterdam all that it is.
